Shh, it's a secret!
1. Brand is obtainable!
When you go onto your favorite brand websites, it is completely understandable that the prices that display in the shops are quite intimidating. Do not worry. There are many ways you can wear name brand lolita fashion at an affordable price. From secondhand shops to sales, here are some options:
♦ Lolita name brands have sales throughout the year,
so you can save big on your favorite lolita essentials.
♦ Lace Market is a great place to find new and gently used items.
Lolita Desu, Wunderwelt, ClosetChild, and Takoyakico are other great online shops as well!
♦ Trades are always a great way to get something new.
♦ Brands offer "Fukubukuro" or "Lucky Packs" at the end of the year.
These packs include apparel and accessories at an extreme discount!
Lolita fashion has a good resale value. If you purchase something you no longer want, or that does not fit your particular style or size, you are able to resell the item or trade it for another piece easily.
2. Do not be afraid to experiment
Fashion only grows because of people who push the defined boundaries and experiment with the style. While there are very defined aesthetic rules required to make lolita, well, lolita, the need to stay interesting and integrate new styles keeps the fashion fresh, new and exciting! There have been many trends in mainstream and other kawaii fashion styles that have made their way into Lolita fashion.
A french peignoir has been added from other popular Harajuku fashions, such as fairy kei and mori kei, into lolita recently. This beautiful airy overly is often made of a light and breathable fabric, such as organza. Flower crowns have also made an appearance in lolita! This recent fashion trend features lovely false silk flowers with every addition from leaves to pearls. They are certainly a delicate and beautiful accessory, particularly if you have a floral print in your lolita coordinate.
Both of these trends are just examples of recent additions to lolita. There are numerous additions that have been added to take Lolita to the next level. If no one added something new to this wonderful street fashion, the fashion would slowly fade. Do experiment and add new ideas to this style!
